Football: Anclote 41, Weeki Wachee 3

HOLIDAY — Anclote finished its first winning season in school history with a defining 41-3 senior night win against Weeki Wachee on Friday.

After clinching a playoff berth  Monday, the Sharks (6-4, 5-2) began their third game in eight days with a Willie Barrett touchdown on the opening drive, a 3-yard rush.

On Weeki Wachee’s (3-7, 1-5) third play of the game, quarterback Marcus Allen was intercepted by Andrew Janus, who returned the ball 47 yards for a 14-0  lead.

The Hornets lost a fumble on the next possession, but Anclote failed to capitalize until its following possession. Quarterback John Forgione led a 75-yard drive capped off by his 2-yard touchdown run.

Weeki Wachee gained a total of 49 yards , with a few negative plays caused by the Anclote defense keeping the Hornets out of Sharks territory  for the majority of the game.

Forgione found Shymere Carter with a 45-yard touchdown pass to increase the lead to 28-0 before the end of the first half.

Carter extended the lead once again with a 14-yard run in the third quarter. The Hornets kicked a field goal to get on the board, but it took just two plays for the Sharks to score again. Luis Perez caught a 36-yard pass from Forgione  for his first career touchdown.

Anclote used JV players in the fourth quarter to rest the starters for Thursday’s playoff game .

“We were trying to get out without injuries,” Anclote  coach Matt Wicks said. “We had a couple kids banged up.”

The Sharks face Gainesville Eastside in their first playoff game.
